Call for Award Nominations


Golden Aesculapius Award

In 1980, the Bexar County Medical Society established the Golden Aesculapius Award as our highest honor recognizing a lifetime of distinguished service by a BCMS member to our patients and our profession. This award is not given annually but only upon the occasion of nomination and confirmation of distinguished service.




Distinguished Service Award

At the January 13, 2009, meeting of the BCMS Past Presidents Advisory Council, the BCMS Distinguished Service Award was established. The first recipient of the BCMS Distinguished Service Award was William H. “Bill” Hinchey, MD. Award presented at the Installation of Officers.
